The deliciously delayed debut release from I, Cactus brings you a short collection of sweet tunes filled with heartbreakingly innocent melodies. As you stroll along with the sun at your back, one cute cactus after another bouncing happily behind you, with this carefree blend of chippy harmonies and clicky crunchy beats you'll never look at a cactus the same way again. Featuring such treasures as "Bamboo Cactus" an unforgettable remix of Nullsleep's "Playful Panda" - this little cactus packs a big punch!

i was messing around the audio portion of the site tonight and had never checked out netlabels. why not? i grew up in arizona. we walked off the back of the property and had salt cedar, horned toads, carpets of sand verbena, scorpions, and sidewinders. i am sucker for cactus pictures and that was the first offering. i'll go with it. charming. i was bouncing around in my chair even between tracks. love green cactus.
To think that such simple twitchy melodies are able to bring back such sweet memories. I found these tracks by accident way back in 03 and just now have regained them only to find them as sweet and innocent as when I first heard them.

Perfect for afternoon siesta's. Sweet, lovely, sleepy and emotional. Love it!
Amazing how simple sounds can sound so good. Absolutly one of my favourite netlabel albums ever. Get it.

honestly i was expecting "more" after reading all these enthusiast reviews. maybe too much intricate and bleepy for my tastes, and would have preferred not-fading-out solutions for the tracks endings BUT this is actually a very well produced ep. melodies are much interesting.

Great new artist!
Great stuff. Great hooks and catchy melodies.
In addition to the stuff released as Grandma, he also has two EPs released as Khonnor.
One on Type Records at:
And another on Please Do Something at:
He is supposed to have a full LP out in March on Type, which I'm certainly looking forward to.

Affecting, lo-fi electronics at their best
This EP, from youngster Connor Kirby-Long, busts out some really beautiful, lo-fi electronic sounds, using pure tones and catchy melodies to his supreme advantage. Highly recommended - I like the 'Chartreuse Cactus' best - oh, and a disclaimer - Connor's also released 3 EPs as Grandma on the net.label I run, Monotonik, which are also well worth checking out.
